Upside down post time again! It's hubby's birthday next week so I've been busy with his card. My main image comes from Joanna Sheen's Egyptian Adventures CD. I'm fascinated by Egyptology so pounced on this CD as soon as Joanna brought it out although it's been a little while since I used it. Of all the lovely images on the CD, this one of Tutankhamen's death mask is probably my favourite. Here, I've used the decoupage sheet version that's also on the CD. The papers are all my own as is the 'die cut' shape on the base of the card, the fabulous ornate corners are from Miriam's Scraps and the wonderful swirl is from a Daisy Trail kit. The cartouche is one I created myself from a royalty free black and white image from the internet in Craft Artist 2 and I'm really pleased with how it turned out.

I'm entering my card into these challenges:
- Charisma Cardz - sketch which I've followed on the top of the card
- Digital Tuesday - Frame It
- Fab 'n' Funky - Add a sentiment
- CD Sunday - Land of the Pharoahs
- Pause Dream Enjoy Challenges - For the boys
And the reason for my title? Well Tutankhamen was still a boy when he died and is helping me to wish happy birthday to a man!
